I Refuse to Think
Jeg nekter å tenke
I Refuse to Think has much of the same sharp and smart humour of Lotta Elstad’s earlier books. We meet Hedda Møller after a traumatic plane landing and hazardous journey back to Oslo, though a Europe in crisis, on buses and trains, dirty hostel rooms and a one-night stand in Berlin that will just not stop sending messages in CAPS LOCK. Back home she discovers that she is unwantedly pregnant. That should be an easily solved problem.
I Refuse to Think is a dark, feministic contemporary comedy about politics, love – and an abyss that is getting dangerously closer.
Nominated for The Oslo Prize 2017 for Best Novel.
“Lotta Elstad’s energy, wittiness and precision makes I Refuse to Think to one of this year’s most enjoyable reads. Within its comical genre, it is absolutely perfect; stimulating, exciting, funny, sharp – and somewhat dark.”Fædrelandsvennen, 6 out of 6 stars
“… a novel that is funny, even if it is political. Elstad writes with energy and good timing. The suspense lasts until the last chapter.”Dagsavisen
